The 2015 American Liberty High Relief Gold Coin features the latest and greatest in digital technology from the U.S. Mint. The $100 face value matches the 1oz Platinum American Eagle and represents the highest denomination ever issued on a gold coin in the United States!
The U.S. Mint fulfilled renowned sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ original vision of an ultra high relief double eagle gold coin with the release of the 2009 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle Gold Coin, closing one era of classic American coin design and ushering in a new one.
The High Relief effect is achieved by using a thicker coin and a smaller diameter, allowing for the background of the coin to be concave and giving the portraits and features a raised, more realistic design.
United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist Justin Kunz created a stunning new interpretation of Lady Liberty gracing the $100 Liberty 24-karat gold coin, along with a contemporary design depicting an American eagle rising in flight, gripping a branch in its talons as an embodiment of freedom.
Containing one troy ounce of .9999 fine 24–karat gold, these lustrous high relief coins are among the world's purest gold coins making them a treasured addition to any collection or precious metals portfolio.
The U.S. Mint’s first-ever $100 denominated gold coin
Renders contemporary designs using the latest in modern digital and manufacturing technology
Evokes the ideals of courage, hope and liberty
Minted at the U.S. Mint at West Point
The 2015 High Relief follows the tradition established by the 2009 Ultra High Relief Gold Double Eagle issued in 2009 which is already selling well above its initial offering price.
Certified coins in perfect MS70 or PF70 condition are considered actual "museum-quality." With their flawless finish, perfect condition and rarity, they are preferred by both collectors and investors. Since they are true collectibles, they are not as subject to the ups and downs of the commodities market, which has made their value more stable over time than gold bullion alone. The U.S. Gold Bureau recommends these coins as a long-term store of value, to help protect your portfolio from turbulent economic times.
